Launched from Red Bank and fished middle section east side from 6 till 11. Within the first half hour caught my biggest bass so far this year 21" 4.5# on a spinnerbait. My buddy caught a 1.5# a short time later. Other than a half dozen dinks, not much after that. Water temps 74. Saw a lot of wildlife out there. First, a trumpet swan-a good 3 ft. tall and not too friendly I might add, a deer, turkey, bald eagle and we think an osprey. Weather was beautiful, just wish the fish were biting a little better.
